A SYMPOSIUM ON THE ROLE OF ARTS AND CULTURE
TUE 29 & WED 30 SEPT 2015 – Bristol and Manchester
No Boundaries 2015 has finished. Catch up by clicking the talks on the website: nb2015.org
No Boundaries is the industry conference for the Arts, museums and libraries, with a focus on presenting questions and challenging new ideas on the role of arts and culture, finding positive approaches to influence change and supporting the sector’s growth in a world of unknowns.
450 delegates from across the Arts and culture sector attended No Boundaries at either of two locations, Manchester or Bristol. Each venue provides a unique experience and a live-link to seamlessly broadcast talks between both spaces and onto the web. Access is prioritised so that all can take part.
The two-day format allowed time for informal discussion and networking around five formal contributor sessions. An array of national and international contributors spoke on five themes relevant to issues facing the industry:
- Can we exercise freedom of expression?
- Are we nurturing tomorrow’s talent?
- How does the money flow?
- Can we do things differently?
- What does success look like?
Delegates could also join in with a range of playful interventions, to self organise discussions in whatever format works best, and to feed ideas back into the conference.
